    Welcome to Gingerrrrr's log!

    Sept 22, 2008

    So I guess ill start a log so you all know what im up to. :) today I went to a farm and the BO said I can work there. Basically all I have to do is feed and water the horses 2 times during the week and I get to ride her 21 year old Palomino QH! Once I get a horse ill be able to work off board. But for now I ride Sonny. He's very pretty. Tomorrow will be the first actual day that I work so we will see how that goes. And before I feed the horses I get to ride! This will be my first time riding since I sold Ginger about 3 months ago. Ill let you all know how it goes!

    Sooo today I got there at 4:30 and rode Sonny western. This was my first real time riding western and I loved it! I wasnt nervous at all since I felt safer in the saddle. Sonny was great! He hasnt been ridden in about 2 months either. After I finished riding, the BO's daughter taught me how to feed the horses and everything. They have a yearling colt who she wants to keep as a stallion and he's super quiet. I got some pics so enjoy!

    So I went to the barn after school and tack up and rode sonny again. I walked and trotted alot today. im really sore. I was invited to go to a Gymkhana on Saturday morning so maybe ill go. So after riding we fed the horses again. The minis are so adorable! And it was also really muddy out so sonny kept slipping.

    Okay so yesterday I went to a gymkhana and it was really fun to watch. There was barrel racing, poles, a mystery event, etc. I went with my new barn family. I was there from about 11 am until 6:40 pm. I got some sunburn on my face. after the show was over I went back to the barn and unloaded the horses and helped to feed them. Then I slept over there house and got up this morning and I helped feed the mama and baby. It was tons of fun and I even made a bunch of new friends!

    Okay so today I went to the barn again. Everyone was finishing riding early because it was getting cold outside. Sonny was being an old fart and would not go back into the arena all he wanted to do was follow the rest back to the barn. So I got off and led him back into the arena and rode more. I walked around and I was getting bored so I trotted a bit and I was feeling rather brave today so I CANTERED!!! It is so much fun! Sonny's canter is so smooth too! I just have to learn how to keep him going at that pace without stopping. I feel like an old pro now. *wink*

    Ok soo... today I rode Dasher! He was the ONLY horse at the gymkhana show who ran a 15.7 in barrels. He's awesome! He's only 6 so he's pretty young but laid back. I walked and trotted him and he has a very nice jog. Its so cool because im not at all nervous to ride anymore like I use to be. Im really confident since if I atleast get a bit scared I have the horn to hold onto. I can acctually enjoy riding now! Okay well enough of me rambling, heres some pictures of Dasher.

    Ok so I rode dasher again today and he was grumpy because we were the only ones in the ring. We were walking around the ring and I turned at the third barrel (big mistake because he's a VERY good barrel horse) and I clicked for him to trot and he took off and a very fast canter! It was fun but that was my riding error. Haha. Then we were walking the barrel pattern and he started to turn really fast around the first barrel but I stopped him. All in all it was a good ride but I didnt ride as long as I usually do.

    I also bought the saddle I ride in and it is comfyyy! I really like it. It needs a good oiling now since I just washed it with saddle soap.
